University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Good morning from UK Football Practice

I did something very unusual today. I woke up before 7 a.m., put on pants, and left the house. That happens maybe twice a year, if that, and it happened because UK Football opened its doors for us to watch practice.

Nick Roush and I are still here as I write this, so we’ll save all the details for when it’s wrapped up, but we’re here and taking it all in as the Cats’ second-to-last week of Spring Football winds down.

Here, have a video of Terry Wilson tossing a 25-yard fade to Isaiah Epps to hold you over.

More of that to come.

In the meantime, a few quick things to know this morning:

The Masters is officially underway. Jack Nicklaus hit the honorary tee shot about 15 minutes ago to kick off one of the best weekends in sports. If we’re a little distracted over the next four days, I hope you understand. Go Tiger.

KSR added a new writer. Thursday is a big day for us here at KSR HQ as we made a pretty significant hire for the program. I’m not allowed to tell you who it is just yet, though; that announcement will come at 10 am on the radio show and here on Kentucky-Sports-Radio-dot-com.

— We’re revealing the name and location of our bar. Also on this morning’s radio show, Matt and Ryan will reveal the official name of our new sports bar coming to Lexington. We’ll also tell you where it’s going to be and when you can expect to drink a Pitino Knew Ale while watching the Cats on one of our many TVs. It’s going to be challenging on our end, but a lot of fun on yours.

I’m told we’re moving football practice outside right now. I think that means I have to go. We’ll cut this short now and then come back soon.

    Curious if they went with the submitted suggestion or if they stuck with KSBar.

    Forgive me for being naïve, but why is this weekend one of the best in sports? Because of the Masters? That’s a laugh. Can’t remember the last time I watched one minute of it.

      You are forgiven for being very naïve.

      chris, you’re not naive, you’re correct. Golf sucks and in no way can this ever compete with the first weekend of March Madness. If I want to take a nap, I’ll turn on golf to help put me to sleep.

      Professional golf is a snooze fest, and this is coming from someone who has been playing golf for a lot of years. I will occasionally watch it, but I can completely understand why most people don’t.

      I just didn’t know if there was something else going on that I am missing. Saying the Masters alone makes a weekend one of the best sports weekend is a huge stretch. Maybe for a very small, select group of people.

    Terry touchdown, what a hoot. These football clowns at ksr were big Morgan newton fans also. What happened to Freddie, only one worth reading when it came to football.

    The receiver had to slow down to catch the pass…. it was underthrown in my opinion.

      I love the fact we have some dedicated football fans on here, it just sad we can’t get some real news without the ksr agenda of pushing a transfer QB that underperformed at the juco level..
